At the #ECOC2021 conference, we presented the web interface of the ETSI 014 #qkd network simulation module (#QKDNetSim). It is the initial version supporting the ESTI 014 standard. Subsequent versions will include routing, support for the ETSI 004 standard and additional functionalities. Feel free to test it at www.open-qkd.eu .
The Quantum Key Distribution Network Simulation Module (QKDNetSim) is intended to facilitate additional understanding of QKD technology with respect to the existing network solutions. It seeks to serve as the natural playground for taking the further steps into this research direction (even towards practical exploitation in subsequent projects or product design). More details on www.qkdnetsim.info
As the research in quantum key distribution (QKD) technology grows larger and becomes more complex, the need for highly accurate and scalable simulation technologies becomes important to assess the practical feasibility and foresee difficulties in the practical implementation of theoretical achievements. Due to the specificity of the QKD link which requires optical and Internet connection […]
